Watch all six Apollo Moon landings at once

Oct 23, 2013 by Nancy Atkinson, Universe Today
Apollo moon landing sites.

So often, when we think of all the Apollo missions to the Moon, we recall the videos of the astronauts walking, jumping and driving around on the Moon. But the actual landing of the Lunar Module was such a key – if not nail-biting – part of the mission. Here in this video you can watch all six Apollo lunar landings at once.

The footage uses the original descent camera coverage, realigned by the person who put this together –lunarmodule5 on YouTube—to 45 degrees to show what the pilots saw on the descent. There's also the actual audio from all the landings. It's amazing to hear both calm and anxiety in the voices of the LMP, Commander and Mission Control, as well as the jubilation after landing.
